Bassa, Carme

Carme Bassa is an accomplished painter and sculptor based in Barcelona. She has over a hundred international exhibitions to her credit.
Her awards include Premio Cola Cao Painting Biennial in 2000 and Premio Fira art Vilafranca PenedèsA in 2009. In 1979, Carme Bassa graduated in Fine Arts from the "Escola Massana“ in Barcelona, where she majored in painting. Bassa uses an encaustic technique, which is the mixing of beeswax and resin with different pigments. She then uses a hot tool to burnish the wax. Her palette of earth colors and Mediterranean blue mixed with textures and shapes create abstract images that refer to everyday life plus the emotional and spiritual.
